Theodore Miller is an American scholar, lawyer and social entrepreneur. He examines the socio-cultural impacts of race and urban inequality on children, adolescents and emerging adults. He is interested in the perceptions, attitudes and legal mechanisms that militate against and contribute to social mobility for ghettoized youth in California’s major multiethnic metropolises, the Bay Area and Los Angeles. Mr. Miller broadly studies race, ethnicity and social inequality, and the political economy of urban (re)development.  A graduate of Yale University and of Harvard Law School, Mr. Miller was inspired as an undergraduate by the youth residents of New Haven, where he worked as a community organizer and mental health counselor for incarcerated, hospitalized and underserved youth. Before pursuing his doctorate, he was a senior policy fellow and advisor to the Honorable Mayor of the City of San Francisco, a corporate attorney at the firm Davis Polk & Wardwell, and the managing member and general counsel of Mid-City Capital, a real estate acquisition and development company of urban infill commercial real estate in Southern California. He is a Hiphop Archive Fellow at the Du Bois Institute at Harvard University and a three-time recipient of a University award for excellence in teaching.
